ISL Results

PSPS v Persela 0-0 15,000
Persiwa v Persiba 4-0 (Eric Weeks 2, Rumaropen, Eddy Baokay) 5,000

Bontang v Arema 1-2 (Moses; Noh Alam Shah 2) 10,000
PSM v Persipura 1-1 (Christian Carrasco; Alberto Goncalves) 15,000
Persisam v Persema 1-0 (Ronald Fagundez) 5,000

Persiba, with a 100% record after their first two games sent a weakend side to Wamena and were roundly thumped for their troubles. Technical Director Daniel Roekitio elected to keep Julio Lopez, Robertinho and Mijo back in Balikpapan figuring it was difficult to get a result in the Papuan highlands and that he would have a better chance of getting a result against Persipura when they meet in Makassar.

Noh Alam Shah hit his first goals in the ISL as he inspired Arema to come from behind and take the lead at the top of the table, ahead of Persela 'cos their first letter is an A.

Fagundez' 15th minute penalty was, the gossips have it, enough to save coach Aji Santoso's job. Newly promoted Persisam had started the season poorly with a 5-2 defeat away to Persema and 0-0 against someone else, both away. Santoso has invested heavily in this squad but he is a little lightweight up front. Though to be fair no team boasting Danilo Fernando can be said to be lightweight.
